Kevin Stefanski Submits His Entry For Worst Coached Browns Game Ever In Cleveland’s Inexcusable Loss To The Falcons

That was inexcusable. Yeah I know we're injured. Yeah I know Kevin Stefanski and Joe Woods were battling to see whether our offensive or defensive play calling could look worse. And yeah I know we're playing with a backup quarterback. But when you have a 4th quarter lead against Marcus Mariota and the Atlanta Falcons, you have to win the ball game. In fact, that's the 4th straight game to start the season in which the Browns held a 4th quarter lead. This team cannot close out games, as we fell to 2-2 with an absolute embarrassment of a loss. I'll turn this one over to Big Cat to speak on behalf of all of Cleveland:

Couldn't have said it better myself. That was a JOKE of a performance today against a team that is absolutely horrible. We had so many chances to win that game, but we pissed them away time and time again. And the blame, while there is plenty to pass around, must start at the top with Kevin Stefanski. That was one of the worst coached football games I've ever seen, and may I remind you that I sat through 40 games of Hue Jackson at the helm. But this one truly was a beauty. Right from the get go, Kevin Stefanski showed everyone that he brought his F game this afternoon.

We had the ball inside the 4 yard line three different times in the first half, and we came away with 10 points. That's unacceptable, especially when you think about the Browns #1 strength of running the football. We have the best running back in football right now with Nick Chubb, we have the the best QB sneaker in NFL history with Jacoby Brissett, and we have a former rushing leader in Kareem Hunt. RUN THE DAMN BALL, KEVIN. Why are we trying to get cute and pass from the goal line?

The Browns won the 1st half time of possession 21 to 9, but went into the half tied at 10. Awful first two quarters, but the second half didn't get any better. We consistently run the football well, until we decide to blow up a drive by getting cute and passing when we don't need to. I hope Kevin was taking notes on what the Falcons did to us: 10 straight runs and a touchdown. And that was with.....Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley? Could you imagine what that coordinator could do with Hunt and Chubb? I know I just said it, but my God, the Browns have the best rushing attack in the league HANDS DOWN. Let's use them! Especially inside the 5!!!!!

Kevin Stefanski was simply awful today, but I don't want him to get all the glory. Joe Woods, once again, was terrible too. If that dude still has a job tomorrow I will have to question what dirt he has on Kevin. I know we're banged up on that side of the ball, partially due to on-field injuries and partially due to an animal jumping in the middle of the road, but I don't care. We're still a professional football team and our defense shouldn't see wide open players run across the field as much as they do. 

Coach Stefanski, your thoughts on that?

Oh, we're NOT designing it to have guys wide open? Jesus Christ. He needs to stop Woods before he even gets on the plane back to Cleveland. Oh, and he also needs to use the kicker we drafted in the 4th round. Why punt it away instead of trying a field goal when our defense was just going to let them score anyways? Let him at least try!

As I type, I'm getting more and more fired up because this team could easily be 4-0. The losses to the Jets and Falcons have been absolutely brutal. I'll say this: I'm not ready to nail the coffin of the playoff chances of a 2-2 team, but I don't see any possible way in which the Browns make the postseason. We just came out of 4 straight games against Baker Mayfield, Joe Flacco, and Marcus Mariota with a record of 2-2. Literally the opposite of Murderer's Row. Moving forward, we'll be seeing the likes of Justin Herbert, Lamar Jackson, Joe Burrow, Tua (maybe), Josh Allen, and Tom Brady. And that's all before we get Deshaun Watson back. If this team just finished 2-2 against four of the worst teams in the NFL, I shudder to think what our record is going to be through this next stretch. Today was a Must Win.
